Obermeyer Jacket Review....


Have you all been able to get out in play in the snow or ski this year?  We have had unbelievably warm temperatures here.  Usually it's 0 below in January, but these last few weeks it's been in the 40's and even hit 50 a few days!  It's just crazy, it feels more like spring than winter as we are not used to this in January but I'm loving it.  However, for those of you that love to ski this weather isn't to good for you.  We have a ski resort about 40 minutes away and I've followed their Facebook Page and they are just praying and praying for some cold temperature and some snow fall.

Well if you go skiing or are active in any outdoors sport then you know that it is great exercise and you know how important it is to have the right apparel when it's freezing out there.  So let me introduce you to a really cool winter sports apparel company called...

Obermeyer was born in the heart of the mountains, Aspen, Colorado by Klaus Obermeyer.  For over 64 years, Obermeyer has been designing and creating technical winter outerwear for the outdoor enthusiast.  At Obermeyer they believe in providing the best possible clothing for men, women and children to make you warm, dry and comfortable while enjoying the outdoors!

Obermeyer recently sent us one of their boys Giant Slalom Jackets for review.  This jacket comes in 10 different colors and we chose the Madras Plaid.  

It is just adorable!  Grady looks so great in it and we love the features this jacket offers...

1. We love the "I-Grow" Sleeve and Pant Cuff System.   The sleeve cuffs and pant cuffs actually become longer if you want them to!  If you have a pair of the pants they can become 2" longer and the cuff's on this jacket and others with the system can become 11/2" longer if need be!  Love that as we know all kids are going to grow...stretch your dollar just a little bit farther - so neat!

2.  It also features mitten clips, love that as my kids are always losing them!  This way they won't as they will be clipped on.

3.  We love the mood changer on the zipper - there are different faces that you rotate to show your mood.  Grady's is usually on the mad or sad face ha ha!  Too cute and such a fun addition to the jacket!

 We also think the working compass is so cool!

4. It features an inside "goodie" pocket

5.  We love that it features soft fleece lined cuffs, fleece ear warmers in the hood, fleece inside collar and chin protector and a removable hood w/auto adjust safety design.


6.  We also really like that it has reflective piping on the back, a ski pass D-ring and an adjustable interior waist drawcord so that you can wear it unconstructed for a "new school" look or cinched at the waist for an "old school" look!


Overall we are just in love with this jacket.  It's insulated very well and offers so many "extras" and most coats don't even compare to it.  It is very well constructed and we know that it is going to last a long time all while keeping our little guy warm!  The madras print is just so preppy and looks adorable on our little guy.  I would HIGHLY recommend Obermeyer products after reviewing them ourselves!

My husband and I have already browsed the products for men and women and there are several we have our eye on...

Let's not forget that they have adorable little girls items too - I'm loving this Peace Suit $169.50-$179.50
